Ovation TV, America’s premier arts network, is pleased to announce the November 2023 stunt and curated programming for its award-winning travel-entertainment digital channel, JOURNY. This Thanksgiving, here’s a generous helping of Pacific Island travels with a side of intrepid adventure alongside adventurers Didiayer Snyder, Ellis Emmett, and Scott Wilson. The month-long “My Pacific Thanksgiving” stunt begins streaming on JOURNY today, Wednesday, November 1.

NEW TO JOURNY! Travel with Didiayer: Fueled by an ambition to engage with the local citizens in many diverse communities, these adventures aim to broaden the audience’s cultural perceptions. Didiayer Snyder and family continue to follow the path as bona fide experience-seekers, casting a light on the essentiality of each destination, serving any travelers insight and inspiration to take a trip. Of course, food is always involved! Didiayer will cook alongside celebrated chefs, discussing the influence of culinary arts and food in a particular region.

My Pacific Quest: Follow Kiwi adventurer Ellis Emmett as he embarks across the Pacific Ocean in search of some of the most remote places on our planet. Ellis must harness the power of the wind to reach isolated islands and atolls only accessible by sailboat. Welcomed by the people who call these shores home, he immerses himself in the fascinating cultures of Tonga, New Zealand, Fiji, Wallis & Futuna, the Marshall Islands, and Kiribati.

Descending: Divers & hosts Scott Wilson and Ellis Emmett descend beneath the surface to explore the part of our planet that is covered in water. Each episode, discover a new location! Beyond the depths of the sea, they learn about the cultures of the local people, share stories of human triumph and tragedy, as well as connect the world on land to the one in the sea. With each trip into the unknown, they come face to face with creatures and sights that most will never get to experience.

Travel Guides New Zealand: This series follows different groups of Kiwi travelers on their local escapades around the land of the long white cloud. These voyagers become travel critics, as they rate and review their holiday experiences in a special way only Travel Guides can deliver: While one person’s idea of paradise is presented, it is another one’s nightmare! These opinionated travelers are thrown out of their comfort zones and deliver both brutally honest and hilarious reviews of New Zealand’s unique tourist attractions.
